Tax Forms: Which one do I submit?
April 9, 2021

If you’re here that likely means you’ve recently registered with Author’s Republic! Congratulations!

Before we’re able to start selling your audiobook and getting you your hard earned royalties, we’ll need you to fill out and upload a tax form.

We’re here to help you decide which tax form is appropriate for you.

If you’re not a US citizen or entity, you may need to know if your home country has a tax treaty with the US. You can find out more about that here.

Where do I upload my tax form?

Step 1:

Log in to Author’s Republic
Select “Settings” and then “My Account”

Step 2:

Select “Tax Forms”

Step 3:

Choose the Tax Form Type that applies to you from the dropdown menu

Step 4:

Type in the required information digitally, sign, and select “Submit”

Which tax form can I expect to receive from Author’s Republic?

On a yearly basis, we’ll send you either a 1099 or 1042 tax form if you’ve been paid at least $10 in royalties over the tax year. If you have questions about which tax form you’ll receive from us and when, you can find more information about that here.

Please keep in mind that while we’re quite a talented team, we are not qualified to give tax advice. If you need additional guidance we recommend reaching out to a tax professional.

If you have any other questions about tax forms, please contact us from the help menu in your account dashboard.
